Ryan Lavarnway's Bittersweet Return To Fenway

 (US Presswire)In 2008, the Red Sox selected him in the 6th round out of Yale. He was supposed to be a mainstay behind the plate at Fenway for years—maybe even an heir apparent to Jason Varitek. But things got complicated for Ryan Lavarnway. The offensive potential never materialized and he drifted in the Boston system for years. Other catching prospects moved ahead of him. Finally...

Jonathan Schoop: Patience at the Plate Key to Hot Start

Baltimore Orioles’ second baseman Jonathan Schoop ranked fourth among all Major League Baseball second basemen last season with 16 home runs. Unfortunately, among full-time players at his position, he ranked dead last in batting average and on-base percentage — .209 and .244, respectively. The rookie drew only 13 walks for the entire season. All things told, it was a respectable...

Rays Sign J.P. Arencibia

     The Tampa Bay Rays have signed veteran catcher J.P. Arencibia to a minor league contract, according to several sources. Arencibia broke in with Toronto, who had drafted him with the 21st pick of the 2007 draft, despite concerns about his defence.  After breaking into MLB with a spectacular 4-5 debut, which included a pair of home runs in 2010, the Blue Jays made Arencibia...

Is Kevin Gausman Too Predictable out of Bullpen?

One of the more interesting decisions made by the Orioles management team this Spring was the one to start the season with former fourth overall pick Kevin Gausman in the bullpen. Gausman made his full season debut in the Orioles’ starting rotation in 2014, and went 7-7 with a 3.57 ERA in 20 starts. His walk rate of 3.00 BB/9 was respectable, but the young right-hander struggled...

Kevin Gausman is Learning to Elevate

There’s a lot going on with Kevin Gausman right now. He’s throwing a curveball, instead of a slider. I learned that from another baseball writer earlier today in my email. He’s working out of the bullpen, instead of the rotation. I learned that from general news, and from all the people who complain in our […]

Orioles Fan Turns Back to A-Rod

Surprisingly enough, Alex Rodriguez hasn’t been making much noise since we saw his calligraphy on an apologetic letter. Still, that doesn’t mean that all is forgiven, especially when he went on the road. Monday night, A-Rod received the expected boos from the Baltimore crowd. However, a fan made it apparent he didn’t want anything to do with the 14-time All-Star. photo courtesy...
